    read the media. agreement with Telstra signed today. :leet:

    I'm sure I could arrange for Laverton to be done last if you're not behind the concept though?

    Went to my brothers place in Brisbane, he has Optus Cable 100Mbit/half Mbit . it was a bit shit. Not as good as my TPG ADSL 20/1 Mbit in real world use. YouTube would not reliably stream. Web pages were loading not so well.

    I had Optus cable 10 years ago , it seemed better.

    I live in truganina, which has no optus/telstra cable at all.. last time I checked, truganina was a scheduled rollout of 2016.. not that I can find any reference anywhere of latest rollout dates..

    So, i don't even think you need to bother as laverton/truganina will be last anyway.. I connect at 22109 kbps so just how much faster could it get?

    so barring FTTP, which is now off the cards for most brownfields areas, FTTN is the outcome.

    you'd be very, very surprised. how about 300Mbps? I can make the current offering kit do that right now, including the as-they-are phone lines.

    don't read Whirlpool too much. the collective intelligence of the lot of the trolls there might approach *one* of the engineers who actually make stuff happen. ;)

    Whenever the NBN comes here, looks like I'll be staying on an unlimited plan.. so that's $60/mth for 100/40 speeds..

    Providing TPG offer it in your area (as not all areas are serviced by every carrier)

    Oh.. woops.. I can't read.. lol

    I'm currently paying $80/month for unlimited adsl2+ and home phone.. so with NBN, for $70/month I'll get 25/5 and phone line (not that I ever use the home phone, nor has it worked in years)..

    So with NBN, i'll get about the same speed now but $10 less a month.. So nothing to get excited about..

    some of us were arguing this stupid in the old NBN thread.


    don't invest in stupid.


    NBN is about replacing Telstra monopoly so everyone can have decent broadband

    Sorry, which Telstra Cable plan are you on?

    I'm on the 80GB Naked Cable plan and typically wait until the end of my month where I pull down around another 100GB over 24 hours or so. I've not dared stretch the 4-6 hour window they claim usage is updated and your connection slowed.

    500gb Ultimate speeds.

    Fixed my Usenet slowness too as per pic above getting full speed.

    I did the extra 80 on the last day of my billing cycle.

    I just changed from TPG adsl2+ (@5.4mb dl and 0.9mb ul) to the $90 Entertainment bundle from Optus. Unlimited cable, all local, national and mobile calls and some international destinations too. And fetch TV included. From $69.99 for adsl and phone (with only local calls inc) to cable, with speedpack included. It's going to be AWESOME. I haven't had cable since I left home, and that was a long time ago with a surfboard modem!

    moot point as anyone living in a cabled area is not getting NBN for a long time.

    Depends what electorate you're in, many people are having fibre rolled out in their cable enabled neighborhoods just look at Whirlpool... Here is the most recent: http://forums.whirlpool.net.au/forum-replies.cfm?t=2379145
